The new year has brought many challenges.
From relationships to finances to family security.
I thought perhaps I had chosen the wrong word of the year.
Perhaps it should be
Then I realized the universe is testing me.
Amidst the challenges I must keep focus.
My beautiful daughter was born with poor vision.
What the doctors describe as legally blind.
With strong prescription lenses
her vision is brought to normal.
Every morning upon waking
she reaches for her glasses
as the world is just a blur
There is never a fuss nor a fret.
Not a worry in that pretty little head.
She puts on the glasses
and carries on.
My mind's eye must have been born legally blind.
Thoughts stumble and wander aimlessly around
finding it impossible to focus.
I look at my daughter and find inspiration.
A simple correction of vision.
Acceptance for what is.
Focus and carry on.
